    Alright so i have a weird rattling coming from this part of my door panel. It when Iím on uneven roads and itís like something is loose. If i push it in a little it stops and Iíve checked and there is nothing thatís rattling and if i have the panel off itís gone. Thoughts?

    So you've removed the door panel card entirely and proven that the rattle is not there with the door card removed? If so, I'd check all the clips that hold the card in place, also wrap any wiring harnesses or connectors that might flop around while driving. And check that any screws holding things in place like arm rests, door handles, window switches, etc are fully secure.

    Do let us know what you ultimately determine the cause to be and how you corrected it.

    I know exactly how you feel. I had the same problem, last night I decided to pull out the panel, and had secured all loose parts. Ha...*♂️ feels good not hearing the annoying rattle anymore.

    Silicone, double side tape, and WB Weld to fix some clip holder that was broken.

    That's the only pic I took before installing back the panel. The trick is, check all the clips, pod lights, speaker/twitters, make sure they're not moving freely. Use silicone or 3M double side tape to secure them.

    I found the cause to the majority of the rattle. It was my Door regulator. I took it off and put some sound deadening and i think its gone. ill find out more tomorrow.
